Monia Sjöström releases Per-penned song

Written by tevensso on May 8, 2003 to .

STOCKHOLM - Swedish singer Monia Sjöström’s new album “Söderns hjärtas ros” (Frituna CD: 584798 2) starts off with the track “Mannen med gitarr” (“The Man With the Guitar”) written by Per Gessle. The track is the regular Per-style pop-rock we have gotten used to. (A few seconds of the song can be heard in the TV-spot shown on Frituna’s site). Other contributors to the album include Mauro Scocco, Nisse Hellberg (of Wilmer X) and Peter LeMarc.

  Monia was previously the lead singer in the dance band Grönwalls, but has since gone solo. This is her second solo album. Her first, released two years ago, was recorded in Nashville, Tennessee, USA.

  “Söderns hjärtas ros” is produced by Micke “Nord” Andersson and Kjell Andersson.


I think the song ist standard-gesslish. Not very bad, not very good. Probably it didn’t fit his new album.

One Bond girl is not enough.
I can be the other one. :)

C´mon boys and girls: Great song! Well done, Per!
Det var för länge sedan...

Why are you all talking about James Bond?
Where can i listen to the song?

I have uploaded the song here:
